In the last year, newspapers and magazines have been running articles about a nationwide shortage of qualified teachers in U.S. public schools. In turn, teachers face complicated problems which can include low pay, unmanageable class size, parental interference, lack of support from school administrators, and violent students. A panel talks about the biggest problems facing teachers and schools, and what can be done to attract and keep good educators.
